A popular event organised by The Rotary Club of Bourne is returning this Spring.

Run in the Woods will be taking place this year at Bourne Wood helping to raise money for the Rotary Club.

This year’s running event will be held on April 19, with both a 3k and 10k run for people to come and get involved in.

The event that was held last year was a great success, with nearly 300 people from Bourne and the surrounding area turning out on a lovely Spring morning to take part in the runs, raising over £4,000 for The Rotary Club of Bourne.

This year the charity hopes to raise money for local, national and international Rotary charities, and to provide an enjoyable morning for all who take part in the event.

The Rotary Club of Bourne helps to organise and fund the Rotary Youth Speaks, Young Musician, Young Writer and Young Artist competitions which are all open to young people.

Other local beneficiaries have included Meals on Wheels, Bourne outdoor swimming pool, Red Cross and Sense, among many others.

Run in the Woods which is organised by the fundraising committee, is made possible thanks to local support and sponsorship from Smiths, Bourne Services, Larkfleet, Rutland Sports, Claybourne’s, Hoppers, The White Horse, Bourne Prepared Produce, The Co-op and many others.

For more information about this year’s event please visit the website at www.bournefunrun.btck.co.uk where you can also apply to take part.

Entry forms are also available from Rutland Sports in North Street, Bourne.
